Welcome to Berlin! The 17th tournament of the Tennis Tipping season. Read the rules and sign-up information and then decide to join!

Playing the game is simple:
- before the tournament starts the main draw is made.
- if you're in the qualifying you send in your pick of day 1 matches in a PM to the person running the tournament (including the set ratios for each match) You also send the exact score of one chosen match by the person running the tournament as a tie-breaker. The result you get is used throughout the qualifying rounds
- main draw starts on day 1 and includes day 2, Players directly into the main draw send their picks with set ratios and a tie-breaker score to the person running the game
- the results will be posted as soon as possible.
- you have to send your picks, before the first match of the day starts, if you send your picks late, then all the picks for the matches already started or finished won't be counted
- a match will not count in case of a retirement, withdrawal or any late schedule changes
- you get a point for each correctly predicted winner and a bonus point for the correctly predicted set ratio, the person running the game can decide if the set ratios get counted for a certain round (you're still obliged to send them), this depends on the number of matches, if there is a large number of matches played in one day, then set ratios might not get counted.

Credit to Slokid for the further above informations.

You can send them either to me at the start or someone like Tennace or Chris 84. ;)
You send these just for verification purposes, you're still the one doing the scores.

May 7th, 2006, 02:41 PM

Doesn't need to, but can do that, but you have to send your picks to me as soon as it's possible.

No tips will be accepted after 10:30am Berlin time.
Reason is ill be at work when play starts and wont know what has started and what matches to count and what matches to void for being late! SORRY

To find the current time in berlin go to
Berlin Current Time (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/city.html?n=37)

It actually goes against the rules to set a deadline by which all tips must be in. The rules state that:

"you have to send your picks, before the first match of the day starts, if you send your picks late, then all the picks for the matches already started or finished won't be counted"

I'd suggest that you'll just have to find out which matches started when ;)

I'd suggest that you'll just have to find out which matches started when ;)If you check out the "OOP and Scores"-thread you'd probably be able to set the approximate times for the matches. Just find out when the first score-update for each match was posted, and you've got your starting time.

ok ill take it off but im sure ive seen a deadline somewhere before... ill use OPP like Donnie D said

SloKid
May 8th, 2006, 06:16 AM
I'm afraid I have to agree with Chris on this one. The rules are there to be followed and are the same in all tournaments.

And you can check, when the matches started, in the OOP thread like Donnie said.

Belco
May 8th, 2006, 07:54 AM
thats fine and im not working today anyway just the next 5 days :D

now ill know for the next tournament i manage if this goes all sweet

TT Prague thread will be out later today and play there starts tomorrow, no problem really since there are not too many people playing there. ;)

Matt was just busy this weekend, but everything will be sorted today.

Smashnova vs. Bychkova starting now, Benesova vs. Chakvetadze starting in an hour.

why without? it aint sarted on scoreboard yet..

scoreboard seems to not show the score of the central court :shrug: But match started about 1 hour ago!

SloKid
May 8th, 2006, 10:09 AM
Maybe there was a mistake in the OOP and the match starts at noon :shrug:

May 8th, 2006, 10:12 AM
some people in the live scoring thread said they can see them with the webcam :shrug:

(of course, webcam doesn't work for me :tape: )

SloKid
May 8th, 2006, 10:13 AM
OK, just checked the webcam and the match is being played and probably started at 11am as scheduled, so Mommiej's pick for that match unfortunately can't be counted.

I'm really sorry, I should've checked, before PMing you. :sad:

SloKid
May 8th, 2006, 10:16 AM
And Benesova vs. Chakvetadze started some four minutes ago.

This is a Tier I and they make such a mistake not to have a sb for the match on the Centre Court for crying out loud :rolleyes:

Anyway I'm off now :wavey:

looks like there are a few... how long do i need to wait before i do the walk overs..
and what happens in the case with KimC&MariaSNo1's vs Soporificeffect ?

put a lucky looser into the 2nd round in their slot?

Since there are two days of the first round you can't do that. Maybe they will send at least their picks for tomorrow.
I'm not sure yet what to do in that case. Will think about it. A LL who had the highest score in R1 could take their place or maybe we can just give the person a walkover in the 2nd Round. :shrug:

a match will not count in case of a retirement, withdrawal or any late schedule changes

belco made a slight mistake that directly affected the winner of the tournament.

The tiebreaker in the final should've been the final and not one of the semi-finals, unfortunately I didn't notice this until the results were out and therefore these results are final.
I'm sorry DomenicDemaria, it's my fault in part.
After the explanations I gave belco I probably didn't tell him this. :(
